Posted on Monday, July 30, 2018 12:35 PM
This week, CMS took steps to strengthen Medicare by proposing changes that ensure that seniors can access the care they need in the places they choose. CMS also included a Request for Information on how best to develop a model leveraging authority provided to the agency under the Competitive Acquisition Program (CAP) to strengthen negotiations for prescription drugs.
“Our healthcare system should always put patients first, and CMS today is taking important steps to empower patients and provide more affordable choices and options,” said CMS Administrator Seema Verma. “In line with President Trump and Secretary Azar’s priority to lower drug prices today’s proposed rule is also an important step towards expanding competition for drug payment in Medicare, in order to get the best deal for patients.”
